    Update Your Email Program Because Of Fraudulent Certificates

    I posted a similar thread in the Third-Party Browsers forum. See it for more about the fraudulent certificates issue.

    If you use Thunderbird, the fraudulent certificate issue is why it has been updated from version 6 to (now) 6.0.2. (Also, if you are using version 3.1.x, you should update it to 3.1.14 because of this issue.)

    If you use another non-Outlook email program, check with it's provider to see what, if anything, you may need to do because of the fraudulent certificates issue.

    See, also Susan Bradley's article on the fraudulent certificates issue.

    Well, I installed the Update and when Thunderbird asks to RESTART Thunderbird to finish installing the update I get an error message shown in the attached screenshot.
    I rebooted and started TB again and got the same message...

    What do I do now ???

    Probably the easiest way is to first uninstall Thunderbird completely. If you do not already have it, I would recommend downloading and installing Revo Uninstaller and then choosing the 4th uninstall option when uninstalling Thunderbird. Download a fresh copy of T-bird 6.0.2 from here and re-install.

    One caution. If prompted to remove your personal data or profiles, uncheck or say No or you risk losing your emails and other settings.

    Thanks for the suggestions but I already fixed it...
    I d/l 3.1.14 and installed it over 3.1 and everything works fine now.

    The probelm happened when I used the UPDATE option in Thunderbird...

    Things don't always work as planned at times..

    WildcatRay,
    I too, want to thank you for the info and the links.

    I regularly use the Revo Uninstaller to clean up after a program UN-Install.
    It gets the little schmutz left over from the process.

    I seldom need to use Thunderbird for one of my customers, but I do like to
    carry the latest and greatest version with me, on my Utilities CD, just in case.

    Again, thank you!

    Experience is truly the best teacher.

    Backup! Backup! Backup! GHOST Rocks!

    What you did basically overwrote/removed the issue. Had it been a freshly downloaded copy of 6.0.2 instead, it likely would have accomplished the same as what you did in installing the older version.

    Unless you have a specific reason for needing to use 3.1.14, I would encourage you to go ahead and download/install 6.0.2. It has the latest in stable features and improvements that 3.1.14 does not have.

    If I remember right, when Version 5 came out I tried that and there were tons of problems with it and a lot of people were complaining on the TB forums about it.

    It caused me a lot of grief until I figured out how to get rid of it and re-install 3.1..

    I'm happy with 3.1 and don't see much need to upgrade to a newer version...
